        The old world charm , archeticture and fabulous staff.

      • Family with children

        old is beautiful,fresh,pleasant and enjoyable

        the switches can be like a riddle

      • Couple

        Great pool (and bar) with view across the sea. Lovely and huge room. Helpful staff. Free wifi. Good cocktails - not too expensive.

        Breakfast was ok but not that great for a luxury hotel. Had some laundry done, which was very expensive.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The sense of history and the restoration has kept the traditions alive. The luxury of the space in the suite and feeling of home and comfort.

        The staff were extremely polite to me and always greeted me but I did not appreciate how they mostly ignored my wife who is Malaysian born. I find this spoilt our enjoyment of the stay. I find it disappointing that the locals discriminate against their own racial origins. Perhaps it is taking the feeling of Colonial nostalgia too far! You should train your staff to show the same courtesy to all guests not just the "Mat Salleh".

      • Older travelers

        The whole stay was truly amazing. We were treated like honoured guests - perhaps even more so because it was our honeymoon. As we were honeymooning we were upgraded to an even better suite, which was huge with wonderful sea views. The food was excellent both at breakfast and in the restaurant. However the thing that impressed the most was the calibre of the staff and the service we received. The entire staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We are certain that this hotel will be a regular stop when we travel to this part of the world.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Comfort, location and service excellent. Would avoid the 1885 Fine dining restaurant which we found disappointing both in quantity and quality - other eating facilities were very good.

        The 1885 Restaurant.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The colonial style staff uniforms, accessories, interior design, heritage architeture with window facing the sea and could see birds flying outside windows in the morning.....Very quiet. The buffet breakfast with great variety of choices. Initiative offer of take away breakfast on day of departure to catch an early flight. Arival drinks and courteous, helpful, pleasant staffs. Also very close to a protestant cemetry we aimed to visit (there was a tomb there for a few missionaries from UK who made important and long-lasting contribution to Penang and China, really worth a visit to pay our respect)

        Staff of Booked.net had promised a double bed but we could only have twins beds combined on day of arrival. A bit disappointed.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Excellent location, great staff, very comfortable. Would highly recommend apart from 2 tiny niggles below.

        Just very small reservations, but the TV reception and internet facilities were below contemporary standards. Also the bar was a little too cold for people escaping the worse winter in the UK for 100 years:).

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The Ambience of the Hotel - it's History, Characters who have stayed over many years and the extremely friendly and professional staff at all levels. A joy to be a guest in this esteemed and famous hotel.

      • Single
        10.0

        Extremely comfortable suite, excellent service, lovely location and well-maintained heritage feel at this hotel.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        The services by the staff were superb.the ambience within the hotel was most conducive to whatever purpose one would have foe staying in the hotel.

        One particular night one group of diners were exceptionally noisy and their presence was most obtrusive.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The old world charm

        The buffet dinner was awful with hordes of local people, noise, dirty dishes. The rooms at the front of the hotel are extremely noisy and at the weekend should be avoided

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The staff were so helpful and the service was exceptional. The grandeur of the hotel in addition to the service made for a very special experience. The food too was excellent.

        We were disappointed with our room because of the road noise. Having stayed before in a sea view room which was quiet, the traffic noise did spoil the comfort of the room.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The 'old world' ambience and quiet nature

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        not just a beautiful hotel but also a sense of history and culture of old Georgetown. Staff all looked proud to be working there.

        Fully priced - for special occasions only for most people
